    Pros: 

    Beautiful Design, Easy to Use

    Cons: 

    None I can think of

    Its brilliant. It gives you a quick breakdown of what the site is made up of.

    My personal fav is that it tells you which theme a Wordpress site is using upfront also shows the extensions used.

    Must have for marketers / anyone interested in webdesign.

    Pros: 

    Easy to Use

    Cons: 

    Includes tools not relevant to me

    Surfaces the tools and applications running on websites which is great for understanding what dev, marketing, and sales tools competitors and top industry performers are running.

    Pros: 

    Learn a website's Analytics provider, Web Server, OS, Programming Language, and more!

    Cons: 

    I haven't found an alternative. I like how this runs!

    This is a fun, little Chrome and Firefox add-on that doesn't take up much space, but tells you a lot of valuable information about what services run a website you search! I added the add-on to Chrome > navigate to a Website > click the WhatRuns Icon on my Chrome toolbar and voilà > see what runs! Learn a website's Analytics provider, Web Server, OS, Programming Language, and more! I like the clickable links to learn more, and that you can subscribe to sites. Check out their website and look up the Bug Bounty program: It's a simple idea that "rewards researchers for their efforts in finding out vulnerabilities in our (WhatRuns) product.

    Pros: 

    Great clean look

    Cons: 

    takes a few seconds to load. Not a big deal

    Just tried this and I love the look and the clean UX. If the data is as good as BuiltWith, I will switch. :)

  • Pros: 

    Simple design, Quickness, Website Lists

    Cons: 

    I have not found a better alternative.

    WhatRuns is a new favorite in terms of chromes extensions. I would definitely rate this as a chrome extension every web developer should have.

    Pros: 

    Easy to use

    Cons: 

    As of late, has consistently given incorrect data

    Given wrong information about the stack and technology used as of

    late to where it is completely useless in comparison to a site like builtwith.com
